Blue Microphones Hummingbird Microphones

The Blue Microphones Hummingbird Small Diaphragm Microphones are a versatile small-diaphragm mic pair that unlocks the tonal nuances of your instruments so you can capture the best recordings possible. With a 180-degree rotating head, Hummingbird fits into tight spaces and can nimbly change positions where others can’t. This pair is perfect for stereo recordings!

The Blue Microphones Hummingbirds are a Small Diaphragm Microphone designed to deliver premium sound and head-turning performance. Featuring a precisely tuned diaphragm and extended frequency response, the Blue Microphones Hummingbird is the perfect solution for drum overheads, acoustic guitar, piano, percussion, or other instruments with fast transients and rich overtones.

Mic Placement is Everything

Simply rotate the Blue Microphones Hummingbird’s unique 180° head to place the mic at any angle and discover the tonal nuances of your instrument most mics would leave behind—all without touching the mic stand.

Premium Blue Capsule

The Blue Microphones Hummingbird’s precisely tuned cardioid capsule is based on the acclaimed Blue B1 from Blue's interchangeable capsule series—making it perfect for any instrument with fast transients and rich tonal characteristics.

Take Your Sound to New Heights

The Blue Microphones Hummingbird’s unique sonic signature is perfect for reproducing the sharp attacks and tonal characteristics of nearly any instrument, including drums, acoustic guitars, strings and more. And with no IC’s in the signal path and excellent off-axis rejection, Hummingbird delivers maximum sonic clarity.

Drums - From a Bird's Eye View

The Blue Microphones Hummingbird’s agility, sonic precision, and ability to handle high sound pressure levels make it ideal for recording drums. And its 180° pivoting head makes it easier to fit into drum rack spaces and get the perfect angle for overheads.

Blue Microphone Hummingbirds January 25, 2018
Reviewer: Kevin Hollister from Windsor, ON Canada  
These are amazing microphones I have 3 pairs of different Blue Microphone mic’s and love them all. I am currently using the Hummingbirds for off axis guitar cab mic’ing for live shows. The R10 on axis Hummingbird off axis.  I can get the hummingbird right in line the the R10 ribbon so no phasing issues Just a beautiful tone when combined on my Digico SD8

Reviewer: vince v. from Detroit  
these are the absolute best mics for the price, and then some. I'm really not sure why they are not more popular. I would buy again.
